Summer

ARAN ISLANDS

On the very edge of Europe is a group of three islands, rich in the language, culture and heritage of Ireland, unique in its geology and archaeology and in their long tradition of gentle hospitality. Here is a place to sense the spirit of Gaelic Ireland. Aran takes you back to an Ireland of Celts and Early Christians. It is a timeless land in an endless sea, weathered monuments on awesome cliffs, great labyrinths of limestone, meandering walls, patchwork fields, quiet beaches and welcoming island people.

DINGLE

The Kerry is renowned for its landscape panoramic views and also for the warmth of its people. It is a popular tourist route around the Iveragh Peninsula that traverses picturesque Irish towns and villages while surrounded by amazing scenery. Beautiful mountainous and coastal countryside with castle ruins, ancient monuments, standing stones, archaeological sites and a section of the Killarney National Park are waiting to be discovered.

WEST CO. GALWAY

Students will take a fun day-trip to the western part of County Galway, where they will visit a local pet farm, and be able to pet and visit the farm animals up-close.
